I use large doses of Vit c and echinacia, about 1,000 mg of c twice a day, and two caps of echinacia 3 times a day. Works great for me along with drinking lots of fresh OJ if possible.

7 days, hunh? Well, you've got another 3 to go, bare minimum. Last time I had the flu, I was sick for weeks. Now I always get a flu shot.

It sounded like a serious cry for help to me, Kzk. Maybe just a long time lurker wanting a little relief and hoping to get some good info here.

True, maybe! Just souunds like they have not had a cold before. Usually when I do get a cold once in a great while it seems to be well over a week and the meds don't cure but relieve the discomfort.

Definately try some echanacia tea, one of the best things to make you feel better and very healthy for you...google it.

Leah-Ann is right on with this one. If a patient has had the signs/symptoms of the flu for more that a couple of days, we don't treat it, only treat the symptoms. It will last 7-10 days and go away, leaving you feeling like you have been run over by a train. So, eat healthy food, drink lots of fluids, take ibuprofen or tylenol three times a day for fever/pain, and get plenty of rest. Tea is great, as is the old Chicken Soup RX. Mostly, time, though. Sorry there isn't a cure yet. Even the "prescriptions" for this don't cure it, only shorten its' time.
